Being its slow with the lockout and RH is starting to stagnate a little, Ive decided to start a thread and topic I've been contemplating starting for a few years now. I really cant think of a proper forum to start this in so I figured I'd put it in here. Im looking at this thread as being a pre suckage Maxim, Details or The Chap (UK) without the scantily clad women and talk of enlarging your tally-wacker. So post whatever you want about anything "Man". Power tools, Guns, Boats, Cars, Fishing Gear, Clothes, Watches, Shaving Cream, Golf Clubs, Strip Clubs, Seal Clubs...anything. Reviews, bitches and complaints... Good or bad. Things we use everyday but can't find a thread/forum OR find it unnecessary to start a thread about it. See where I'm going???
What really got me thinking about making this thread right now is Wallets. I am SICK and TIRED of buying a wallet every 6 months just to have it fall apart just when it becomes broken in. I usually just go to Kohl's and buy a black or brown $25-$35 Leather Trifold with a interior ID window and photo sleeve made by either Dockers, Nautica or Kohls store brand, Sonoma. Well, Im over them. If I need to drop a C note on something that will last and is well made, I'll do it. I'd even pass over $150. I dont keep a lot of Credit Cards on me but I do keep and receive quite a few Business Cards. I have tried the separate BC fold but I end up losing it after a few days. Any suggestions? I'd like to stay with leather but If I have to go back to a Ballistic Nylon Rip Wallet like I had as a child in the 70's, I will...less the Yin-Yang or Hang Loose Shaka sign on it of course.
Also, I have found the Holy Grail in Mens Steel Toe Leather Shoes...
I bring you The Timberland PRO Gladstone ESD (Electro Static Dissipative) Full Grain Leather Oxford:
Amazon.com: Timberland Pro Men's Gladstone ESD Oxford Shoe: Shoes
Ive have worn this shoe now for over a year and it is, without a doubt, thee most comfortable work shoe I have ever owned. In fact, I now own 3 pairs. I wear size 11 Wide and the Size 11 Normal width fits perfectly. The leather is so soft after the break in that it conforms to your foot width. Not only do I wear this 10 hours a day at work, It's my shoe of choice for day to day usage. I even wear it when the family takes a trip to the local amusement park. They are fantastic. BUY THEM!
And last but not least, after 40 years of wearing Levi's, Im done with them. They suck. The quality of the denim is crap and the stitching is weak. Ive had 3 new pairs blow out along the belt loops and the stitch on the outside of the legs. For $75, they are crap.
